Chicken Shawarma (Pita chicken wrap)

Hi everyone! It's feels like ages since i first put up a Shawarma recipe...jeez!! It's been "only" three years but it feels like it was just yesterday that post went up. I must confess, I've been having shawarma take outs more often so i guess that's one of the reasons why i never settled to put together a post on chicken sharwama. Thank goodness i've got that settled now i'm back in my zone.
Chicken shawarma is a tasty sandwich wrap which is pretty easy to make. It's really similar to beef shawarma with the only difference being that chicken is being used instead of beef as it is in beef shawarma. If you don't have pita bread in your vicinity, you could learn to make yours from scratch by Clicking here. For the Hot press (To seal and heat up the wrapped shawarma), you could make do with a grill, sandwich Toaster or a frying pan….They both serve the same function only that one heats both ways (Most times leaving grill marks) and the other heats one way leaving no line at all.

How to make chicken shawarma
•Prep time:
  20 minutes
•Cook time: 5 minutes
•Yield:         10 Shawarma Wraps

Ingredients::: 
• 3 medium sized carrots
• ½ medium sized cabbage
• 1 medium sized cucumber
• 2 green pepper - Optional
• 2 tbsp. chili powder
• ½ kilo grilled chicken (with the bones removed)
Mayonnaise - As desired
Ketchup - As desired
• 2 tbsp. Vegetable oil



Preparation/Directions:::
Step 1: Chop the cabbage, Grate the carrots, Dice the green pepper & slice the cucumber- Set aside separately

Step 2: Shred or dice the grilled chicken and set this aside

To assemble:::
Step 3: Get one pita bread and open the pocket (This divides it into two). Place one on top of the other. 

Step 4: Rub mayonnaise over the bread on top. Add the cabbage, carrot, green pepper, cucumber, chicken.

Step 5: Sprinkle with powdered chili and drizzle with ketchup and more mayonnaise.

Step 6: Fold to seal the contents and place on the grill (Greased with a little vegetable oil). Reduce the burner to the barest minimum and let the shawarma heat up on the side with the open flap . Flip and do the same for the other side. 


Step 6: Yep! Your Chicken shawarma is ready. Serve.



Remember, portion control is one of the secrets to healthy living……..So, indulge a ‘lil but stay healthy.

    1. Hello Happiness,You can only keep your shawarma strong by making it when you want to eat it (quick service style) or simply adding the cream and mayo when you're ready to eat. Hope this helps.
